  1. clutch master to slave pipe compatability

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello there, I own an Alfa Romeo GT 2.0 JTS and it needs a clutch master cylinder to slave cylinder pipe. Am I restricted to the exact model, or has the same part been used in other models eg. the ***** 156 or 147? Would anyone know where to obtain one. I love my car! To lose it for just a...
  2. Thermostat compatability

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Anyone know if a stat from a 2.0 JTS engine will fit a 2.0 TS engine? I know that the connections are different underneath but could the T section be taken from the old stat and reused on the JTS stat? Mine is running too cool since being away, barely going over 70deg unless at standstill and...
  3. Iphone 7 and Blue&Me Compatability + 3rd Brake light - Giuietta

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, New to this place but it seems cool. Now, I have an 2011 Giulietta and its just starting to have a couple of issues... the third brake light has lost a few LED's and its now it seems to be ever so dimly lit when on (in day light its hard to see). I suspect it is a LED unit issue...

    Does anybody know if the pre-facelift bumper supports fit the facelift 156 (2003 onwards)? Part numbers: 60685794 and 60685797. This place says that they do fit Stütze Stoßstange Radhaus vorne links Alfa 156 (93 - Alfa Romeo Ersatzteile - Italia Ricambi and this place doesn't...
  5. 147 2.0 Front leg and D/shaft compatability

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Afternoon all, after some advice regarding the front legs/ hub carriers and Drive shaft compatability/interchangeability between models. I have an 03 147 2.0L TwinSpark Lusso with either a knackered wheel bearing or Driveshaft, the driveshaft boot has a nick in it so it could be dirt ingress...

  7. Wheel bolt pattern compatability 156 to 159?

  8. Window Switch Compatability?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Picked up a drivers window switch of a 3dr 147 from the scrapyard other day to clean up and replace my gummy GT one. The scrap 147 i think was an 03 plate and my Gt is a late 55 plate. Anyway i plugged it in and my mirrors worked but not the windows and the odometer started flashing???? I...
  9. GT engine compatability

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just a quick question and apologies if its been asked before (i did try the search but may not have worded it correctly) Im thinking about getting a spare engine to have rebuilt (one of these no rush things :) ) Would a JTDM2 work in a 2005 GT Jtd? Or would it involve changing the loom, ecu...
  10. 159 and brera compatability

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I'm looking for a drivers side window ecu and can't seem to find the exact one that I need, I've managed to find one on eBay for a 159 much cheaper. If I install the window ecu from a 159 into a brera, will it work? They look identical so I'm not sure!
  11. Alternator compatability between 8V & 16V

    Alfa 155
    Hi Guys Need info please - busy reassembling 94 2L 8V after full engine rebuild. HOWEVER, it appears that the alternator has been nicked from where the bits where stored :cry: (it's been a year long rebuild ...) I'm hoping the alternator is the same as those on the 2L 16V's, as then...
  12. Steering Rack Compatability

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi folks, I need a steering rack for my '06 1.9JTDm 159. But before my mechanic can remove the old one, he needs me to supply him with a new or refurbished one. I can get one from a 1.9JTS Petrol model, does anyone know if this will be the same. Will it fit, or indeed if the steering rack is the...
  13. Parts compatability question

    Alfa GTA

Front and rear springs and dampers. (Same as 156 excluding the mount?) Timing belt kit/Variator for 147 1.6 TS (Does...
  14. GT 3.2V6 Water Radiator compatability

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Sorry, if this has been asked before, but can I use a water radiator from a GT 1.9JTD/2.0TS for a 3.2 V6. I assume that the hoses are identical but wonder if the 3.2 V6 requires a higher heat dissipation. Thank you in advance to all for replying.
  15. 166 red key with 2 black buttons compatability

    Alfa 164 & 166

    Found a maybe easy solution too my headgasket / power issue. Do the 147 and 156 share the same front subframe?
  18. 164 wheel compatability

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm thinking of replacing the alloys on my '97 164. It has the kind of alloys which you usually see as standard on the twin-spark GTVs and spiders, but I've never really been mad about them. I fancy putting on some genuine Alfa wheels, not aftermarket alloys. I've always liked the teledial...
  19. New head unit and Bose compatability

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I can't live with with the connect unit anymore,the radio reception is poor and I think the sat nav is just as poor. I'm thinking a Pioneer SPH-DA100 APP RADIO. Would the Bose system I have in my GT 3.2 work with another head unit. Thanks in advance.
